Webinar: Web Accessibility for Advanced Components

information

Overview

How do we craft advanced components for people who use screen readers or rely on keyboard navigation?
In this webinar you’ll learn how to provide an equally good user experience to visually impaired users. We’ll talk about 7 mistakes developers often make that hurt usability and will discuss how we can remedy this.

Before the webinar’s start, participants will receive an interactive example so they can run the screen reading demo.

Note: This event will be held online and is free of charge. A link to the webinar will be sent to your email after registration.

Nice to have

Some experience with HTML and JS will be helpful.

Skills

The presentation will discuss

Why building inclusive interfaces matters
Which are the most popular screen readers
Focus management techniques
How to hear your component
Ways to provide accessible names and descriptions
When and how to hide things from screen readers
Be prepared for...

Introduction

Speaker

Rosen Kanev

Senior Front-End Developer

 

Looking back to where it all started, Rosen sees software development as just a hobby for him initially. He enjoyed it so much, though, that it soon grew into a full-time job, and now he’s been part of MentorMate for over 4 years. He’s leading 1 of the teams building an app for on-demand help for stress, anxiety, and depression with almost 800k monthly active users.

He says that what he loves most about working as a front-end developer is the opportunity to make a delightful user experience. As for his free time, he likes to read fantasy novels and has recently picked up a new hobby — he’s an amateur horticulturist focusing on garden and landscape design.

Webinar: Package Management With Azure Artifacts

May 28, 2020

Overview

The webinar will discuss how we can use Azure Artifacts and put it to practice by creating and deploying NuGet packages. We’ll also show you how code can easily be reused between projects. In our demo, we’ll demonstrate how we can create a new NuGet package with Azure Pipelines and then deploy the NuGet package with Azure Releases inside Azure Artifacts.

Webinar: Bundling Application and Infrastructure Deployment

May 12, 2020

Overview

This free webinar is going to review the pros and cons of bundling application and infrastructure deployment.
The traditional approach оf infrastructure and application deployment is more of a layered one. First, we set up the infrastructure — with all the networking and security groups, compute and storage options. Then the application is deployed using this predefined infrastructure, passing configuration and credentials.
While the traditional approach is more of a layered one as described above, what happens if we bundle it all together?

Webinar: API Testing With REST Assured

April 28, 2020

This DevTalks session will focus on the BA role on projects through two prisms: social impact and technology. We will explore a case study showing how technology can be used to make an impact and change lives for the better. Also, we will see how technology affects the role of BAs and what we could do today to upgrade our portfolio.

Overview

Overview: We’ll explore why API testing is important and how we can leverage REST Assured to write efficient tests. We’ll also look at good patterns to follow and bad practices to avoid when using automation tools. In the end, we’ll put it all into practice and write some example tests.

Note: This event will be held online and is free of charge. A link to the webinar will be sent to your email, a couple of hours prior to the event’s start.

What It Takes To Be a Multidimensional BA

November 14, 2019

Also, we will see how technology affects the role of BAs and what we could do today to upgrade our portfolio.

Overview

We’re glad to announce our next DevTalk in collaboration with IIBA Bulgaria. This session will focus on the BA role on projects through two angles: social impact and technology. We will explore a case study showing how technology can be used to make an impact and change lives for the better. Also, we will see how technology affects the role of BAs and what we could do today to upgrade our portfolio.

Common Patterns in Microservices and the QA Way Around It

October 9, 2019

The first part of the lecture will be a dive into common patterns in microservices. We will explore event sourcing, Saga and Command Query Responsibility Segregation (CQRS) and the opportunities that they bring. And at the end of it, we will build a couple of microservices that use these patterns from scratch.
The second part will explain more about how to simultaneously test microservices and create documentation with Groovy and Spock, and what advantages they give us when testing. We will also cover how we can easily create data-driven tests with Spock.

Image Moderation Using Serverless Architecture and AI in AWS

December 5, 2018

А DevTalks session for a real-life example of some of Amazon AWS hottest services. We will leverage AWS Lambda to power the solution, Amazon Rekognition to do the AI-based image analysis and AWS Step Functions to orchestrate the whole process. And one of the best things about it – the “pay as you go” model, where you pay only when your app is used.
